Taste: I was excited when I came across this tea on youtube so I had to give it a try. The packaging said to use cold water but for a first steep I wanted to try it with room temperature bottled water for 5 minutes. The first thing I did was detect the aroma but to my surprise there really wasn’t anything I noticed. As for the taste it wasn’t that great the first words that came to mind was sour citrus water. I understand it’s supposed to be tangy but I can see it probably being improved by adding some sweetener. I also want to give it a fair try so I will also be steeping using cold water (bottled or tap) so see how it comes out then. Using cold water first awakened the aroma citrus & the color was also darker. I didn’t dunk the bag as I did before steeping the first cup. The flavor this time was weak hot sour oranges. Overall I didn’t find this tea enjoyable.

I really got into tea early(2013). I’m happy I stumbled upon Steepster because I’ve been able to learn soo much more! Before I drank my tea from tea bags never really venturing out to try loose tea.

I’m apart of Teavivre Free tasting activity,I joined after making my first purchase with them.
Thank you Angel & Teavivre
